It is estimated that the number of connected objects will increase from 1.7 billion to 6.6 billion between the end of 2014 and 2020. This exponential growth will be possible thanks to ever-lower costs for integrated smart sensors and hardware devices, and wireless communication and data processing. Complex IoT solutions require more sophisticated communication platforms and middleware to simplify the seamless integration of devices and networks.In recent years, Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture has emerged as the leading design type for web-based services. REST architecture is simple and lightweight. The best-known implementation of REST design is HTTP, the protocol on which the World Wide Web is based. RESTful Web services clients and servers implemented over HTTP can take advantage of the existing infrastructure on which the Web is based.
This opens up new markets. The WISE-4000 series is aimed not only at automation system integrators, but also at system integrators with high-level IT programming skills. Cloud file storage and data logging capabilities give you access to data anytime, anywhere. Users no longer have to worry about collecting data from the logger or data gateway. The WISE-4000 series offers data splitting, data logic and data logger functions.
Direct access to the cloud and direct access to mobile devices simplify data access. Thanks to 3-level security, data can be stored, accessed and published more securely.
Advantech WebAccess is a browser-based software suite designed to automate complex IoT applications at production sites for distributed controller applications in water/wastewater, oil and gas energy distribution, and environmental applications at industrial sites and smart buildings. You'll find all the features of conventional HMI and SCADA software packages in WebAccess, including animated graphical displays, real-time data monitoring, trending, alarms and logs. WebAccess communicates with automation equipment and supports over 200 different industrial communication protocols. It displays and stores data in real time, and gives operators controlled mobile access to modify setpoints, equipment status and other parameters of PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), controllers, I/O systems, RTUs, DCSs and DDCs.
